I hope a solid performance against a quality team like Florence will give us confidence and momentum moving into Regionals next week."

"I was really pleased with our emotion and energy tonight," Patriot Head Coach John Swick added, "Crandon did a great job of keeping us off balance with a strong serving performance in what was a back and forth match all night. We showed a lot of character in coming from behind to win the second set and then holding on in the third."

Wildcats Sweep

STAA Cavaliers


Lena took the short trip to Marinette where they took on the Cavaliers of St. Thomas Aquinas Academy Thursday night.  The Wildcats took advantage of strong serving and key errors on their way to a win in straight sets, 25-17, 25-12 and 25-17.

"They did really well tonight.  We worked on net play at practice a lot yesterday so it was great to see them come out focused and ready to play," said Lena Head Coach Heidi Place.

With set number one tied at 4-4, Brooke Peterson went off for three straight points to give Lena the 7-4 advantage.  Peterson recorded a tip kill then served up two aces to secure the lead.  Then it was the tough serving of Kendra Slempkes that improved the lead to 13-7 in favor of the Wildcats.  Millie Benson would not let the Cavs go down without a fight. Benson served five straight times that included four aces as STAA tied the game at 13-13.  With the score at 15 all, Lena took over the match.  Peterson recorded a kill to give the Wildcats the serve and Ally Demmith did the rest.  Several strong serves made the return difficult as Lena jumped to a 20-15 lead.  Slempkes' tip kill followed by a Brianna Sylester slam ended the game 25-17 for the Wildcats.

Set two was more of the same as the teams when back-and-forth. As the score was knotted at 5-5, Lena scored 12 of the next 15 points to break the game open.  Lena recorded four aces in the run including one from Peterson and Slempkes and two from Savannah Leppala to go ahead 17-8.  Benson struck back with another ace for the Cavaliers, but Demmith's tough play at the net quickly ended that.  Demmith recorded a block and kill separated by a block from teammate Kaylee Huberty that extended the lead to 20-10.  Lena went on to win the match in convincing fashion, 25-12.

"Combing the JV and varsity girls together this week really gave us a lot more options.  We took a look at our strengths and have seen that we have a lot of girls swinging hard for us." Cavalier Head Coach Katie Soletske added, "We switched from a 4-2 to a 6-2 this week to help us improve defensively. The tough part is that a lot of it is stretching the comfort zone for them."

In the final set, Benson continued to shine behind the service line.  Three straight aces to open the third set gave STAA a 3-0 lead.  Lena, however, would slowly respond.  Demmith blocked another Cavalier spike at the net to give the Wildcats an 11-10 lead.  With the game tied at 17-17, Slempkes' serving run sealed the deal for Lena.  Slemkpes served eight times including three aces and three kills, two from Sylvester and one from Huberty, to end the game 25-17.

"They've worked hard, every week we have something to work on.  As we get to the end they are working together more as a team in communicating and everything is kind of coming together," Place said of her team's improvement throughout the season.

Sylvester led the way in kills for the Wildcats with seven while Huberty finished with four.  Slempkes finished with 15 assists, five aces, two digs and two kills to cap off a solid all-around performance.  Demmith's three blocks led the team while also adding three kills.

For the Cavaliers, it was a heavy dose of Millie Benson as she had eight aces, 11 assists, five digs and a kill.  Gabby Beranek's 18 digs were tops on the team while Kianna Bulin paced the offense with four kills.

"Lena has been good all year.  They have really strong leadership and a lot of consistency," Soletske said of the Wildcats.
